Lacrosse tourney: The Fishhawk Coyotes youth lacrosse organization will host the U.S. Lacrosse Gulf Coast Chapter's season-ending championship tournament on April 27 at the FishHawk Sports Complex.
The event will draw all boys and girls team from the west coast of Florida and reflect the continued growth of the sport and the Coyotes program.
More than 250 boys and girls grades 1-8 participated on the Coyotes' 10 teams this spring, up from two boys teams and less than 40 players four years ago.
The Coyotes also offer a summer program of skills, drills and instruction and a fall program, which is the same as the summer session only stepping up the competition to include intrasquad games. The summer program will run Tuesday and Thursday nights from May 14 to June 27 at Pinecrest Elementary for all school-age boys and girls.
Participation is limited by demand, field space and coaching, so the organization encourages early registration for the summer program.
Registrations can be completed on the Coyotes website at fishhawkcoyoteslacrosse.com. For information, call director of player development and coaching Brian Lemon at (813) 689-2070 or email [email protected]
